Welcome to the Lambert Lab @ Cornell AEP

My name is Guillaume Lambert and I joined the department of Applied and Engineering Physics of Cornell University in July 2016.

My lab uses fundamental physical principles and synthetic biology to study biological systems at the single-cell level.

Current research interests include:

  • Antibiotic resistance: emergence, population dynamics, evolution
  • Synthetic biology: engineered genetic circuits in bacteria
  • Systems biology: optimality in gene networks

Please visit our research page or read our latest publications for further information.

Research opportunities: The Lambert Lab is seeking highly motivated graduate students and postdocs. For more information, please email me () or visit the contact page.

Fall 2018 AEP1200: Guillaume will be teaching Biophysical Methods in the Fall of 2018. For more information, please visit the class website.
